Gypsy & Traveller Accommodation Assessment 2013
The 2004 Housing Act requires local authorities to assess the accommodation needs of Gypsies, Travellers, and Showpeople and to make adequate provision for them through the planning process. Cotswold District Council has worked with the County Council and the other five district councils in Gloucestershire to undertake an assessment of Gypsy and Travellers and Showpeople's accommodation needs within the county.
The 2013 Gloucestershire Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Accommodation Assessment identifies the county-wide and local authority requirements for sites between 2013 and 2031. The assessment states there are currently 44 pitches provided within the Cotswolds with a future need for a further 26 pitches by 2031.
The Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment (GTTSAA) is available both as a full report and executive summary.
